Every so often (not often enough) I am inspired (or kicked in the butt enough) to write something. These somethings have usually been essays, and remarkable enough, most of them have been published - usually in alternative free weekly papers in Philadelphia. Some generated letters to the editor, and I'll be including these eventually. Most had illustrations, and once I get a scanner, I'll include them as well.
An essay about rediscovering a piece of my closeted past. My first published piece, and still one of my best. I was terrified about letters to the editor, but there were none! Hmmm...
My second published piece, first Welcomat piece. Silly ramblings, a lot of fun and it generated weeks of letters.
Although I make my living in computer support, this is the only piece I've written about it. One letter. When the Welcomat published its 1,000th issue, they excerpted articles from various years and this was one of the two they picked from 1990!
My only gay piece aimed at the gay community (and published in a gay paper). About prejudice in the gay community. One letter.
This was my response to a homophobic comedian I saw at a comedy club. It was published in the Philadelphia Welcomat in September, 1992. It only generated one letter to the editor, but nicely enough, the letter was from a co-worker I barely knew and was extremely positive.
My silliest piece to date. KYW is the all-news radio station in Philadelphia. All news, all the time!
